3. I'm not wanting to see destruction, but if they had to move a 'certain' trailer park....

in Paradise to create a fire break, I would be elated.

Years ago, I was reading my Grandfather's diaries, and stumbled across the coordinates to a gold mine he was working. I got excited and visited UCD's map room at the Shields library, and sure enough, right where he was describing, there was a pick and shovel marker on the map. I spent some more time locating the exact location on a modern map, then BAM, I discovered the mine was slab-dab in the middle of a damned trailer park. Shit!

The smoke from this fire has filled the Sacramento Valley with high smoke. One account says the fire exploded from 5.000 to 10,000 acres in a matter of hour when the North wind kicked into overdrive.
